Ever notice how cans of cooking oil sprays end up empty so quickly? They are costly for how much actual oil they have in them. They also have quite a few additives. You can make your own at home two ways.
You can make a plain oil spray by transferring your favourite oil to a clean spray bottle. You can make a lighter oil spray by mixing 3 parts distilled water to 1 part oil.Pour in a clean spray bottle and shake before each use. It's an added benefit that the spray bottle is clear and you can actually see how much is left, unlike with those aerosol cans. I also love being able to set the spray nozzle to "mist" and get just a touch of oil to save on calories.

I'm trying to eliminate unwanted chemicals from our diet. I don't like the things in the non-stick aerosol can that I usually use. It struck me the other day, make your own!
This is a great cooking spray with no additives. Store it in a cool dark place.
In search of ways to save money, I have run across liquid lecithin. This is good for making non-stick cooking spray by combining half liquid lecithin and half grape seed oil and flavoring with imitation butter, to taste.
To make your own nonstick spray, combine equal parts of vegetable oil & liquid lecithin in a pump bottle. Liquid lecithin can be found in natural food stores.
